Plantar Fasciitis Exercises

  • Plantar fasciitis or inflammation of the Nerve Shield Plus Review plantar fascia occurs when the plantar fascia develops very small tears where it joins the heel bone, or along the ligament itself. With poor biomechanics, overuse or other catalysts, the pressure applied to the plantar fascia during running and walking and the shift of body weight from one foot to the other can tear the fascia from where it joins to the heel and develop microscopic tears.

    Plantar Fasciitis Stretching is important for rehabilitation from plantar fasciitis. Practising routine, periodic stretching exercises on the plantar fascia ligament, back of the foot and calf muscles, very often lessens the tension in the damaged ligament and helps the healing. It is likely to see people suffering from plantar fasciitis with diminished range of ankle motion and tight calf muscles. Stretching these areas cuts down the probability of re-injury.In recent tests over 80% of patients suffering from plantar fasciitis reported that increasing flexibilit helped their recovery and over 25 percent thought that their stretching programs were the best treatment they used.

    Regular gentle stretching is the key. Start stretching slowly and cautiously at first since overstretching at first during the first points of recovery can re-injure the plantar fascia and do more harm than good. With stretching, less is often more and effective treatments come from a 'often and little' approach. Stretching should be done at least two times a day (preferably more regular) rather than diving into one long, overly aggressive stretching session on an infrequent basis. Due to the risk of re-injury, you should always closely follow a structured stretching plan that has been designed to add extra activity and force slowly at the same pace as the ligament heals itself.
